Question about 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier
I need to replace my rear turn signal bulb. I can get to the turn signal mechanism but cannot pull the bulb out of the 'frame'. Is there something I need to turn or push or pull to make the bulb come out? I've done this before but for the life of me, I can't remember how I did it and I'm afraid I'm going to break it since all I can think of is to pull harder (which is not working). Thanks!
You have to push in the bulb and turn it counterclockwise. Be careful not to break the bulb. If it happens to break, just get a pair of needlenose pliers and push and turn the bulb. the have a groove going down and a little turn to lock the bulb in place.

I had this same problem last month. There's no magic trick to it - I finally got it out when I pulled HARD. But it turned out that the bulb had rusted into the frame so badly that even after I got the bulb out, cleaned out the frame and inserted a new bulb, it still only worked sporidically (the rust or whatever it was, was why it was so hard to get the bulb out in the first place). I finally went to the chevy dealer yesterday and shelled out seven bucks for a new frame - and now it works perfectly.
If it's any help, this is where i went for the instructions on how to change the bulb.
